2019 Scholarly Communications Unconference


Fall 2019

ASERL is pleased to announce the third Scholarly Communications Unconference (“SCUNC”).

What is an “Unconference”?

Unconferences are decentralized, participatory affairs. Anyone with an idea can initiate a session to discuss, teach, hack, build, problem-solve, or any combination of those things. Rather than a single speaker pontificating from the front of the room, unconferences encourage open discussion and participation.

Why should I attend SCUNC?

SCUNC is really your conference. While embracing the unconference ethos, SCUNC participants will focus discussions around practical applications of scholarly communication, including open access, alternative collection strategies, digital publishing, copyright, IRs, altmetrics, and other areas of interest to you, the scholcomm practitioners.

To ensure a good group dynamic, this event will be limited to 50 participants. ASERL members only, please.  Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first served basis.
